And it’s way sooner than expected.
Following the release of Halo Wars 2 on PC earlier this year, Halo Wars: Definitive Edition is set to hit Steam later this week alongside the Windows Store and Xbox One.
The news comes via a tweet from the official Halo Twitter account. Halo Wars: Definitive Edition will come to Steam, the Windows Store, and Xbox One on April 20. Prior to this, the only way to have the remaster of the first title was to have pre-ordered Halo Wars 2 on Xbox One or the Windows Store.
